Rolling in it: €35m Adele in at No 6 in under-30s rich-list

ADELE has made it into another exclusive chart -- a top 10 of the highest-paid celebrities under the age of 30.

The singer earned $35m (€28.5m) between May 2011 and May 2012, according to American publishing firm Forbes.

It put her at number six in its top 10 which was dominated by women singers, with Taylor Swift topping the charts with $57m (€30m).

Justin Bieber was the only male in the top five, which also included Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

Experts examined album and concert sales, film deals and advertising endorsements to reach the figures.

Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson also made the top 10 with estimated earnings of $34.5m (€28m) and $26.5m (€28m) respectively.







Grammys

Adele, who recently revealed that she is pregnant with her first child, had the world's biggest-selling album last year with 21, which sold more than 17 million copies.

This amazing achievement earned her six Grammys, two Brits and two Ivor Novello awards.
